For better or for worse, there will be a director’s cut of 2017’s Justice League, created by director Zack Snyder.
Warner Bros announced it would premiere Snyder’s Director’s Cut of Justice League in 2021 on the upcoming HBO Max streaming platform. It will be titled Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but far no specific release date or runtime has been announced.
If you recall, Snyder started out as the director, but didn’t finish due to the death of his daughter — although some say he was on the outs before that. Legendary Joss Whedon (director of: Buffy, Avengers, Age of Ultron) was called in to finish the project. In the end, the movie was a resounding disappointment. The user rating on IMDb is 6.4, and on RottenTomatoes the critics gave it a 40%, with fans awarding it a 71%.
Ever since Justice League’s disappointing release, fans have been clamoring for Snyder to finish the movie his way. I guess it can’t be worse, but no matter how Snyder edits it, he’s still stuck with one of the worst superhero villains of all time.
Both Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck supported Snyder to release his cut of the movie on Twitter.
